Closing the Loop - pragmatic circularity for phones
Each year, some 2 billion mobile phones are sold across the globe, bringing us information, value and joy. But our devices have two major flaws: their procurement can’t be done in a sustainable way, and at end-of-life, they often find their way into e-waste streams.
Dutch company Closing the Loop has developed a ‘closed loop’ service that turns those two problems into one solution. The basic set up of their service is quite straight forward. When a customer buys a new mobile phone, a small 'offsetting fee' is added to the purchase price. Closing the Loop's approach is pragmatic, proven and NGO supported.
